Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation

Renate Klein

Jennifer Lahl, President of the Centre for Bioethics and Culture Network recently recapped the winners and losers of 2017 in a newsletter. First winner was Renate Klein for her book Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation. Jennifer said

Renate Klein is a winner for her new book Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation. She is a lifelong scholar and activist who has worked for decades opposing third-party assisted reproduction. Her book is a solid contribution to the important debate around surrogacy. She unapologetically calls for the absolute abolishment of the practice as a violation of human rights."

About the book

In Surrogacy: A Human Rights Violation Renate Klein details her objections to surrogacy by examining the short- and long-term harms done to the so-called surrogate mothers, egg providers and the female partner in a heterosexual commissioning couple. Klein also looks at the rights of children and compares surrogacy to (forced) adoption practices. She concludes that surrogacy, whether so-called altruistic or commercial can never be ethical and outlines forms of resistance to Stop Surrogacy Now
